Due to the COVID-19 positive case in New South Wales involving a hotel quarantine worker, the Victorian Department of Health is contacting all arrivals to Victoria from Sydney since 13 March using data captured by the Travel Permit System.

NSW Health has identified one high risk exposure site on Saturday 13 March. We will be requiring anyone who visited this site at the times specified to get tested and immediately quarantine for 14 days.

The site is Pancakes on the Rocks, 507 King Georges Rd, Beverley Hills, 13 March, 10.45am – 12pm.

Anyone now in Victoria who visited this site at the designated times will be treated as a primary close contact and is required to quarantine for 14 days.

NSW Health advises that a further 7 lower risk sites have been identified and anyone who was a customer at any of the designated venues at the listed times should monitor for symptoms. If they appear, immediately get tested and isolate until a negative result is received. 

More information about these sites is available from the case locations and alerts in NSW page. 

Victoria is working to support NSW authorities to contain the case. Under Victoria’s Travel Permit System, areas of NSW may be re-designated as red or orange zones by Victoria’s Chief Health Officer as further information emerges.
